    Yeah, they really messed that one up, didn't they?

    Most of the abandoned mill properties are redveloped into technology parks, and some have been developed into commercial/residential.

    You can still find gritty, dirty places, but it's because they're simply gritty and dirty. One place where I worked kept its office in an old Westinghouse plant. It was a cool place to wander around during lunchtime. Some of the sets for Silence of the Lambs were in the factory in the sky, so called because the only place to go for more floor space was UP.

    Rules are put in place to get MORE posting. Not less. Regulation to entice participation. Like Economic Development incentives... except nothing like that.

    Back later all. Enjoy your randomness.
    Me? It didn't even occur to me that you are 22 posts ahead. No, make that 21.

    From the Carnegie Library on the internet. If it's on the internet, it has to be true.


    Bridges in Allegheny County
    State 1311
    County 521
    Pittsburgh 120
    Municipalities 187
    Total 2139


    Another figure shows 446 bridges in Pittsburgh. I'm going with the library's numbers.

    Some brewery, I want to say maybe Deschuttes, has a saying on the bottom of every bottle cap. But it's always the same and it says "bravely done". I like being congratulated on my brave bottle opening skillz.

    "Huge tracts of.....land"

    Indeed!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    You mean like "Coughing. Your lungs' way of getting rid of shit."? It would make a great motiviational poster.

    Has anyone ever seen the bridges of Madison County? (I mean the bridges, not the movie)
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
